METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 8, 2005 GAME:John Autero
July 18, 2005
Question: When are the Mets going to start paying me NOT to go to road games? And as awful as this game was, it was a typical road game for me. I was at the 9/19/84 game in Philly when the Mets lost 13-5, the 6/11//85 game when the Phills led 16-0 after 2 and beat the Mets 26-7. And I was at the Montreal series 6/10-12/88 when after losing the first two, the Mets led 3-0 in the 9th when Davey Johnson took out Sid Fernandez who was pitching a 1-hitter. Of course, they lost 4-3. This loss to Pittsburgh typifies my 1-11 road record-and I got to see them lose the 2nd game of the series too. Oddly, my only win came in 1998 in Boston when the Mets beat Wakefield-but got only two hits.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
